WordPress 2.5

For those that use WordPress, just a note about the upcoming 2.5 release: it rocks on toast. I’ve been using the Release Candidate 1 for WP2.5 for a week or so now, and the improvements in the admin interface are enormous. Better organization, more ajax interaction, just much, much smoother. Every time I’ve gone to do something in the last week I’ve been surprised at the ease.

This isn’t to say that you won’t have to update your plugins, as always…but WP2.5 finally has one-click automagic updating of plugins. This isn’t quite ready for primetime, but it’s very close.

I haven’t dug into the hardcore coding changes yet, but if the things I have noticed are indicative of the things I haven’t yet, I’m really looking forward to this release.

One reply on “WordPress 2.5”

Jason, I upgraded over the weekend, and I think the new version has some issues with the image uploading. While the batch image upload is a sweet feature, I have found that it only works with smaller res (smaller file size) images. This may be an issue with my host, and I’m looking into it. However, a quick check on the WordPress support forums shows that other folks have been having problems with image uploads.
